Histologically, such a disorder may be identified in the periphery of the lung, based on the presence of dense, hyalinized, type-I collagen; smooth muscle hyperplasia; and bronchiolectasis.
The typical radiologic findings in PSS-associated ILD consist of bibasilar ground-glass attenuation, superimposed on mild architectural distortion, reticulation, and variable traction bronchiolectasis with a homogeneous appearance correlating with NSIP (Figure 5).
Minimal architectural distortion, such as traction bronchiolectasis and lobular distortion in the areas of the consolidation, can occur in chronic cases.
